Maitland has embarked on an urban renewal pilot project called Create Maitland.
Create Maitland aims to activate vacant commercial properties by placing attractive, engaging, creative businesses and community initiatives into empty spaces. The program builds on the success of Renew Australia, which demonstrates that activating shopfronts makes town centres more appealing and lifts the commercial appeal of the property for prospective tenants.
Council invites owners to provide access to suitable and available property. We also encourage expressions of interest from local creatives and makers looking for a space.
